I just read that a person from the Amazon board requested Oberon to make them a Kindle cover with the Pond design before they went to vacation and Oberon did it. They claim they just received it. How true is that? I did not think that was possible. I would have ordered the below wraparound design in red. And of course, I'd want the matching button. I will be ordering a 2nd one when Oberon comes back if this prove to be true.

Lilly,

I can understand why you want a 2nd Oberon cover -- what a picture!

I've not heard of Oberon doing custom-orders before. I do know through here that they are a family company and are *very* customer-friendly.

Patrizia, a KB member, has dealt with Oberon in person extensively. You might want to PM her about this.

Lilly - that is the same cover that I wanted for my K. When you talk with Oberon you might mention that to them.
I will also email them and ask. I collect sunfaces - mostly in stained glass and I loved this one. :)

Hadn't heard that!  I would contact Oberon directly to find out.  The sun button is cool, but looks quite domed--I know Oberon went with the flat buttons on the Kindle covers so that the cover could be folded behind and stay flat.  (I think the button is quite cool).

I love the sun face, too, it looks like it would make a great quilt design!

Yup, so they had to create and cast a new button just for the Kindles. If covers prove popular, maybe they will have the square button in different designs to match the covers.

It's in the I kinda lied about the Oberon covers thread.

M. Babcock says:
I called Oberon just Before Christmas and they made me a cover in the pond design and I got it in less then a week. I love it it's so beautiful.
I carry it in my purse everywhere.
Warning sitting in your car reading with the stereo and fan on can lead to a dead battery. Thank God for cell phones.

Thanks Luv! I am wondering if she paid extra for that? Hoping she might come here and post a pic!
Octo, here is the reply from the Amazon forum:
"M. Babcock says:
They charged the same as the other Kindle covers. You can find a picture in the Oberon Journals.
I would post a pic for you, but I don't have access to my email due to a virus on my regular computer. I'm having to use my husbands lap top for now.
I got the cover with the corners and it has a square button."

I had written to Oberon in Dec. to ask if they would make a plain cover (not for me, but a gift for someone else) and Don wrote and said they'd certainly consider it, but not until 2009, when the Christmas rush was over. That answer was completely understandable so I was a bit surprised to hear that they made a custom cover during the busy holiday season.

I have the business card case in the fairies and I love it. I put my ipod in it so my ipod and Kindle have nearly matching covers. I have the butterfly cover for my Kindle.

Ooh, I love fairies, too! I've been leaning toward the butterfly, but this would be even better! Somebody on the amazon boards said that they were going to take votes on their website on which new designs to offer. I'm assuming that will start in mid-January when they start fulfilling orders again.

I've not seen any indication that they do that kind of custom work but you should go to their website, www.oberondesigns.com, and ask them!
